Alabama News Network Sponsors Senior Health & Wellness Expo
The cold weather can take its toll on our health, especially for senior citizens. Today’s Alabama News Network Senior Health Expo aimed to keep seniors healthy and active in their communities.
Alabama News Network is the sponsor the event. About twenty different local businesses and vendors were on hand at Eastdale Mall to meet with seniors and talk about their health care options. That includes everything from pharmacies to physical therapists.
Seniors could also get their blood sugar levels and blood pressure taken–and find out more about services they may not have heard about.
“I really enjoyed it, and I think it’s a great opportunity for seniors to find new things they didn’t know were available, if they have illnesses or things that they need. I think it’s really good for them,” said Naomi Hill, who went to the expo.
This was the first year for the Senior Health Expo.
